‘The One-Hour MFA’ author Michael Kimball to read at Ivy Hall
This winter’s Ivy Hall Writers Series continues on, next welcoming Baltimore-based novelist Michael Kimball to SCAD Atlanta. Kimball will give a reading at Ivy Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Kimball has written eight books, including “Big Ray,” “Dear Everybody,” “Us” and, most recently, “The One-Hour MFA,” a pocket-sized guide to fiction writing as concise as it is edifying. Kimball’s writing has been translated into a dozen languages, including Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Korean and Greek. His work has appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” as well as in Vice, The Guardian, Bomb and other publications.
Kimball is perhaps best known for the collaborative project “Michael Kimball Writes Your Life Story (on a postcard),” in which he condensed more than 10,000 years of other people’s lives into a collection of 300+ postcard-sized biographies. The project, which began in 2008 as a performance art piece, has been called “delightful,” “audacious” and “flabbergasting.” In addition to his acclaimed writing, Kimball has also dabbled in documentary filmmaking.
